Looking to accomplish your Google Cloud Platform Certification.  Don't have time or funds to spend on expensive courses and want to avoid the extra marketing fluff.    This course should aid in your accomplishment

Welcome to the Google Cloud Certified Professional -Architect Exam Prep Bootcamp.  This course will get you ramped up in Google Cloud Platform so you can successfully take the GCP Cloud Architect exam

In this course we start with a brief overview to ensure everyone has the same understanding of the platform.. The understanding you NEED to pass this challenging exam.  We will cover the aspects of the GCP Platform you MUST KNOW to pass the exam...  Such as migrating Virtual Machines, Determining the proper data storage requirements, analyzing performance and monitoring the GCP Platform,   

Remember, this exam is not a walk in the park and I say that as an AWS Certified Pro.  Google looks at cloud differently and generally has catered more towards developers.. So if you dont know the developer jargon some of Google approaches may not make sense..  Also, this exam does not test you on the basics of Cloud and thus you need to know what exact services and for that matter what exact service Google believes. (Yes, several questions had answers that could be correct depending on how you approached the question..

To be blunt this exam is not written in a clear and concise manner so it will take some "abstracting" what they are asking... 

Most lectures are 5 - 12 minutes long with tons of demos to show in the GCP interface what you need to know.  

So lets get started..

 What you can expect from the GCP Bootcamp?

1.  Condensed content focused on getting your certified.

2.  Reducing your certification prep time significantly. 

3.  Over Thirty lectures covering every subject area in the exam 

 4  Numerous links to reference material you need to study

 5. Contact info to ask any questions. 

Optional Practice exam that has is a separate charge.

Who would be the target audience?

  • GCP Beginners. Some minor experience would be helpful since this course does not spend much time on GCP 100 materials

  • Existing Solutions Architects

  • Existing Cloud Managers and Administrators 

  • Programmers Interested in Deploying Applications on GCP

  • People interested in hosting highly scaleable, fault tolerant applications (such as Wordpress and Joomla) on the GCP platform IaaS or PaaS.

  • Taking the GCP exam and need to get certified Quickly...

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone looking to gain knowledge to the Google Cloud Platform Certified Professional Exam - Architect
  • Anyone looking to learn more about Google Cloud Platform
  • Anyone looking to prove their knowledge about the Google Cloud Platform

Lets introduce you to Google Cloud Platform and some distinguishing facts that you should know for the Exam. 

Introduction to Google Cloud Platform
Demo - GCP Console

Google Cloud Platform services are available in locations across North America, Europe, and Asia. These locations are divided into regions and zones. You can choose where to locate your applications to meet your latency, availability and durability requirements.

Regions are independent geographic areas that consist of zones. Locations within regions tend to have round-trip network latencies of under 5ms on the 95th percentile.

zone is a deployment area for Cloud Platform resources within a region. Zones should be considered a single failure domain within a region. In order to deploy fault-tolerant applications with high availability, you should deploy your applications across multiple zones in a region to help protect against unexpected failures.

To protect against the loss of an entire region due to natural disaster, you should have a disaster recovery plan and know how to bring up your application in the unlikely event that your primary region is lost.

Hierarchy Organizations, Projects, Folders and Resources

A project organizes all your Google Cloud Platform resources. A project consists of a set of users; a set of APIs; and billing, authentication, and monitoring settings for those APIs. So, for example, all of your Google Cloud Storage buckets and objects, along with user permissions for accessing them, reside in a project. You can have one project, or you can create multiple projects and use them to organize your Google Cloud Platform resources, including your Google Cloud Storage data, into logical groups.

Build modern web and mobile applications on an open cloud platform: bring your own language runtimes, frameworks, and third party libraries. Google App Engine is a fully managed platform that completely abstracts away infrastructure so you focus only on code. Go from zero to planet-scale and see why some of today’s most successful companies power their applications on App Engine.
